"James A. Cosby's book on the roots of rock and roll is a fascinating look at the historical aspect of this comprehensive music. He carefully traces some of the earliest examples of what later evolved into what we recognize as rock and roll, and the journey on which this book takes us is consistently informative and enlightening. The author covers the music’s history with careful, accurate details, and also adds an appreciation for its aesthetics. It allows even those who already have some understanding of the music’s roots to learn more details and obtain a deeper understanding. Highly recommended. It is one of the quintessential books on rock music's roots."--Examiner.com "Informative and entertaining"--Penniless Press "Do we really need another book that purports to tell the history of rock music? When the book is as thoughtfully written and meticulously footnoted as James A. Cosby's Devil’s Music, Holy Rollers and Hillbillies: How America Gave Birth to Rock and Roll, the answer is a resounding yes."--Broad Street Review "A lot of useful, thoughtful, and engaging information throughout the work…provides an illuminating and intriguing look at how the genre became a cultural touchstone."--Kirkus Reviews. Rock music today is universal and its popular history is well known. Yet few know how and why it really came about. Taking a fresh look at events long overlooked or misunderstood, this book tells how some of the most disenfranchised people in a free and prosperous nation strove to make themselves heard--and changed the world. Describing the genesis of rock and roll, the author covers everything from its deep roots in the Mississippi Delta, key early figures, like deejay "Daddy-O" Dewey Phillips and gospel star Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and the influence of so-called "holy rollers" of the Pentecostal church who became crucial performers--Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard.
